I found some Toy Story sugar cake icon toppers so had to surprise my little ones with a cake. I just whizzed everything together and had a sponge base ready. My eldest loves coconut, so this came into play. End result a cute looking slim line sponge as I didn’t want them to have too much, that disappeared in minutes, especially as their Daddy helped eat it too. The almond extract tastes sooo good with the coconut and sugar! Yummmmm!
What was really cute was that my 3 year old would not eat the sugar characters as he said “No! Mummy, I can’t eat them, they are my friends!” Lol!
Have a tremendous day and I shall see you all tomorrow friends, much love D x
